Program Notes:

I. “Retirement Assets for First and Second Marriages: Let the Fun Begin"

Professor Hoyt will address strategies, traps and solutions for challenging situations that estate planners frequently face. The program will address the different rules that apply to IRAs compared to 401(k) plans, and solutions to the most common obstacles that arise in second marriages where a client may have assets in both types of retirement plans. For example, what legal requirements must be met for some or all of the IRA or 401(k) assets to be payable to children from a prior marriage?

II. "Income Tax Savings with Charitable Bequests: IRD and Income-based Bequests"

An update on planning lifetime charitable gifts from IRAs in 2018, followed by planning for the best way to structure charitable bequests of retirement assets. What strategies work best, and what are the most common problems estate planners encounter? What actions can be taken to overcome the challenges and achieve a positive tax outcome?

Cost-benefit choices for the philanthropist when choosing between a private foundation, a supporting organization, or a donor advised fund. A summary of various legal, tax, and administrative advantages and disadvantages of each type of philanthropic vehicle to help a donor make the best decision. With emphasis on the new rules for donor advised funds.
